SLP New Student Information

On behalf of the faculty & staff of the Division of Speech-Language Pathology, I would like to personally welcome you as a new student to the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). We are so excited to guide you in this educational endeavor as you acquire the knowledge and skills you will use as speech-language pathologists.

Please note, acceptance is conditional until all prerequisites for the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) educational program have been satisfied.

We realize that starting a new program at a new university can be overwhelming. We aim to provide you with all the information you need to prepare. This website contains a series of links with information essential for your transition to our program. Please review all of the content very carefully so that you are fully prepared for a successful orientation and start to the program. As additional information becomes available, we will update this site.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Becca Barry, our amazing Student Services Coordinator, at

We look forward to seeing you in August!
